Spherix D-tagatose to be Supplied by Inalco SpA
Date:4/30/2008

BETHESDA, Md., April 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Spherix Incorporated (Nasdaq: SPEX) announced today that it has signed letters of intent with Inalco SpA, an Italy-based manufacturer of bulk pharmaceutical ingredients, to supply a portion of the D-tagatose used in the Spherix Phase 3 clinical trial of the unique sugar as a treatment for Type 2 diabetes. Inalco will also provide cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) production batches of D- tagatose for the Spherix New Drug Application (NDA) and will hold a Drug Master File (DMF). The Phase 3 clinical trial is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2009. If the clinical trial demonstrates efficacy of D-tagatose as a treatment for Type 2 diabetes, Spherix plans an initial purchase of 100 metric tons of D-tagatose from Inalco and a long-term supply agreement. Financial terms were not disclosed.

"This is a significant accomplishment toward achieving our goal of putting in place all the elements needed for a complete NDA submission," said Claire Kruger, CEO of Spherix.

Spherix is currently seeking approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in order to market D-tagatose nationwide as a drug. If granted US approval of its NDA, Spherix plans to also apply for approval of D-tagatose to treat diabetes in the European Union (EU).
